I have been trying to figure out why my parents computer will be fine and dandy and then it just goes to a black screen. I have not seen it myself yet. I looked through everything I can think of. I did the HP scan on everything. I do not have the code that he says pops up when he shuts down by the CPU button. I cannot find anything in the error registry except for the AVG optimizer. I know that the free trial is up and that pops up all the time. But, I just don't see how that can do anything to the monitor. I am thinking it might be the video card or the actual monitor itself might be going bad. I saw through my browsing the mini tool box download, would this be a way of narrowing the safari hunt I have going on? I am stumped on this one. I have read all the diagnostics that can be read and nothing is showing up...
